Fedora 9: Leading edge or bleeding edge?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 200.69.231.253] on May 19, 2008 10:48 PM
I'm a loyal Fedora user since the days of Core 1, and I have to say that probably this was the worst version for us KDE users. KDE 4.0 is months away from a usable state (calling a version for developers is saying that developers don't need a stable environment to do their job?), and that's not counting the missing applications (like Kate). The rest of the systems shows the usual problems in the very first days of a Fedora release (like non-working NVIDIA drivers), but this gets better after some weeks.

I really hope the guys from kde-redhat (kde-redhat.sourceforge.net) manage to release KDE 3.5.9 packages for Fedora 9. I don't want to wait until KDE 4 becomes usable again (sometimes next year by the looks of it).
